You have heard some rumors about people getting sick lately, but the coughing is more widespread than you would have expected. Your years as a lumberjack may not help with what is going around, but it has given you a great deal of experience with an axe. You deal an extra 1 point of damage when using any sort of axe.

Ruhk was born to Ulfen immigrants who came to the city of Oldfen on foot after disembarking at the capital of Andoran.
His father was a hardworking hunter and his mother a herbalist.
Because of the often dour nature of his father and the somewhat distant air of his mother, most people are surprised that Ruhk grew up to be the man he is today, especially after earning the nickname of "the dandy".

Even as a child, Ruhk loved the outdoors, but he also loved being the centre of attention.
Often the young boy would come home covered in grass stains as well as cuts and bruises only to spin an amazing tale of daring do and adventure.
Behind every bush lurked hideous monsters who he would defeat with only a stick after a massive struggle, and fortunes were found underneath ever rock (only to be given to the deserving or lost again before returning home).

Had the young boy not also showed a talent for magic and swordplay, it is likely that his dour father would have disowned him when he came of age.
As it were, Ruhk continued to get in trouble, but he also sharpened his ability to talk his way out of it, sometimes by being polite and (somewhat) contrite, sometimes by bluffing, and sometimes by telling such a tall tale that the offended party could not help but laugh.

Another kind of trouble Ruhk often got into was stalking friends, neighbours and relatives(few as they were) in the streets, and he became quite decent at surprising the mostly human populace of Oldfen.

Eventually, all good things must come to an end, and for Ruhk, it was his fathers strong "Suggestion" that he would leave the home to find gainful employment, preferably far FAR away from home, for an extended time.
That sounding like too much hard work, and knowing it would be more fun to once again thumb his nose at his father, Ruhk instead decided to simply move to the next town over and work as a lumberjack.



Ruhk was blessed (or cursed) with hair that started turning white at a young age, and by his 20tieth birthday his mane of hair is snow white, giving him a somewhat older appearance.
His beard his cropped short and shows similar signs, having developed a salt and pepper colour (More pepper than salt so far).

His skin has taken on a slightly weatherworn look with an almost permanent tan due to the time he spends outdoors.

When Ruhk is out hunting he moves with agility and stealth, but as soon as he enters a social situation he changes.
When speaking to others he tends to declare more than simply talk, prone to using more words than necessary and smile a lot.

With a nickname like "The dandy" it is not surprising that Ruhk cares a great deal for his outwards appearance, as long as there is water to be had, he bathes or washes every day, cleans his clothes and combs his hair.
In addition, he has a habit of adorning himself with jewellery whenever he gets a chance(most of this is later given away to friends or lovely ladies).
